Excellent choice to submit a Richard Culliton script and a Judith Donato script! I love those writers.

But it's a pity all the great Luke stuff is mixed in with meh Raven Lake in two of these episodes.

Could you please post something about the writing process for Procter & Gamble soaps? And tell us how to decifer from the day's credits who wrote the episodes's breakdown and who the script. It would also be nice to know who were the writers of Guiding Light episodes.
